Thanks for the tips Scott. However, I'm in England so I have to suss out local talent. There is a Costco here somewhere, but I've no idea if its the same as the one back home in Canada.

I collect Nativities and I can tell you that good ones are hard to find anywhere, at least for me. In fact, Nativities are the first items in a long line of Christmas products I'd like to design and market because so much of what is available out there is bad. In my opinion, Fontanini is one of the worst. Not because they don't make quality stuff, they do. My problem is that they are historically and Biblically inaccurate. The Nativity is a huge part of my Christmas and what is so compelling about that story is stark realities of it. Joseph and Mary had nothing. The birthplace of the Savior was not a scenic or pretty place. And the wisemen weren't even there. So I tend to go for the simpler displays and hope that some day I can find a way to do this "right". Unfortunately, I haven't an artistic bone in my body and am so busy making a living that I don't have time for what I consider would be the best job in the world -- making Christmas right 24/7.

We have a porcelain set that my parents made years ago, hand painted too. I think everything is still intact. Not sure if any pieces are broken or not, we have not put it up for several years.

I have a crystal nativity set that I put up mostly out of respect.

OO I LOVE that knitted set.
I have a rather large set for the front porch.
Then I have a beautiful painted set I actually got from
Walmart for under 40 bucks. Its beautiful. I also have a clear glass set I got from Eleanors Gift Shoppe.
